First, I want to apologize to you for not meeting the deadline for posting this article on the day I promised, which was 3/17/12. I had a family emergency that needed my undivided attention.
Here, now is the list of harmful ingredients you should look out for when purchasing processed food:
Aspartame, Autolyzed Proteins, BPA (Bisphenol-A, Casein – Milk proteins, (used in soy cheese), Corn Syrup/High Fructose Syrup, FD&C Red #40, Homogenized Milk, Hydrochloride, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride or Thiamin Hydrochloride, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Partially Hydrogenated Oils, Phosphoric Acid, Propylene Glycol, Sodium (dead salt), Sodium Nitrite, Soy Protein, Sucralose (sold as Splenda), Sugar (white/bleached), Textured Vegetable Protein (genetically modified soybeans processed with hexane), Yeast Extract (hidden form of MSG), niacinamide and cyanocobalamin (synthetic vitamin B-12). Genetically Modified Ingredients – not currently listed on the label because the GMO industry (Monsanto and DuPont) absolutely does not want people to know which foods contain GMOs. Nearly all conventionally grown corn, soy and cotton are GMOs. They’re linked to severe infertility problems and may even cause the bacteria in your body to produce and release a pesticide in your own gut. If you’re not eating organic corn, you’re definitely eating GMO corn. Some of the diseases that are caused by these harmful ingredients are: cancer, neurological disorders, seizures, blurred vision, migraine headaches, infertility, hormone disorders, diabetes, obesity, mood disorders, high blood pressure, heart disease just to name a few.

to find out, in details which ingredient causes what disease. In addition, look out for these, too: acesulfame-K (found in baked goods, chewing gum and gelatin desserts,BHA (Butylated hydroxyanisole) found in cereals chewing gum, potato chips and vegetable oils, , olestra – found in some potato chip brands, potassium bromate – found in bread, propyl gallate-found in chicken soup base and meat products, sodium chloride – found in pre-prepared snacks/meals etc.
My hope is that if enough people read the ingredients and dump those packages that have those harmful ingredients, the food industry will be forced to produce healthier food. Meanwhile, we might have to do some cooking ourselves.
Hope you will come back in three weeks to find out what kind of food my family and I eat in order to avoid those killer ingredients.
